    I have had it before. Although It could be a case of bumblefoot! Check the bottom of its foot and see if there anything black or swollen or doesn't look right, or if it feels hotter than usual. My chicken was limping for a couple days about a week ago, guessing she just hit her foot or something. Keep me updated!! xD
